Just did a whole new setup on the coupe went 418W and tubular K member. My question is what coilover springs do I go with on the front with that heavier motor?

I have used 14" x150lbs and presently using 14" x130lbs. Aluminum headed 408", no accessories, aluminum 2 core rad, fiberglass hood, etc.
Did you notice any difference in 60ft changing springs-what struts are you running ? Does it bounce a lot over bumps with 130's on the street. I ran 4cyl front's and 90/10 lakewoods for years with no issues and not sure how that would compare

Unfortunately I do not have any back to back 60ft data. The 130s are OK on the street as far as a street/strip goes. I didnt notice any difference from the 150s. Coil overs are great for adjust-ability but nothing compares to a stock style eibach drag launch spring in terms of weight transfer.

to many factors that control all of that... what we run wont work for you or maybe anyone else.
